The Quantico actress was quick to reply with, “Haha as if!!” and said Johnson looked “extremely dapper” in blue velvet.
Later on, Chopra, a Bollywood actress-turned-Hollywood A-lister, generated a ton of mixed reviews from fashion gurus as she rocked her Ralph & Russo-fitted white gown. Priyanka flaunted her toned body in an unconventional dress at the 89th Academy Awards in Los Angeles. The 34-year-old paired her gown with towering ivory heels.
In opting out of a necklace, Chopra drew complete focus to the linear top of the dress. Priyanka finished her look with a stunning pair of $5 million 60-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings.
The gown was adorned with geometric details complete with a structured bodice, giving a glimpse of Priyanka’s svelte figure through a slit in the back. The former Bollywood actress said she stopped fretting about the fashion police.
“I used to (get bothered about fashion policing) but not so much now. Now, I wear what I like and what I’m comfortable in and if someone doesn’t like that, they don’t… They are entitled to their own opinion.”

This was Priyanka’s first time attending the Golden Globe Awards, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“I walked out with this big train, and I did it for the first time, because I was like, ‘Oh, it’s so pretty, and I feel princess-y… And after I twirled once, I was twirling all night… Then, onstage, Tom [Hiddleston] made me twirl, and I was only twirling.”
The Quantico star told Jimmy Fallon, “This was my Marilyn Monroe moment.”
Priyanka Chopra doesn’t believe in drawing differences between the industries and focuses on similarities binding the entertainment world together.
“I have said often enough in the past, there are many similarities between the two industries… both in the good and the not so good aspects. There are also differences and I guess that’s what makes each unique to itself.”
